When filming the movie, Help in early 1965, the Beatles were in many locations. There are authentic examples of flight menus and publicity pictures from the Bahamas. Unfortunately, Neil Aspinall also signed similar items throughout the filming of this movie.

During the 1965 United States tour, the Beatles signed for Teen Magazine reporters, disc jockeys and even opening acts. Contact with fans was becoming more difficult as they were constantly surrounded by security.

By 1966, the Beatles were tiring of constant engagements and television appearances. As they curtailed these events, autographs became nearly impossible to obtain. Only a handful of signed items have appeared from their final tour in the United States. It is estimated that less than 10% of all the autographs signed in the United States during the years 1964-1966 are authentic. Below are pictures of the rare 1966 United States Tour Book that was signed for one of the writers of Datebook Magazine.
